1941-02-15 FM 5-35 OBSOLETE Engineer Field Manual Reference Data
"The engineer field manuals are designed to furnish technical information, describe the organization of engineer units, and outline typical procedures that may be followed in the conduct of the more common operations undertaken by engineers in the theater of operations. Local conditions in the field will always affect the application of these procedures, tables, and formulas; they should be taken as suggestions and guides to be used with judgment and modified to conform to the situation rather than as regulations to be rigidly followed. The purpose of this manual is to present the fundamentals from the engineer field manuals, FM 5-5 to FM 3-30, inclusive, in such condensed form as to be available in a single text when needed for ready reference in the field. Information and instructional matter not needed by experienced engineers or details available elsewhere required for deliberate construction have been omitted. Other data required for field construction have been added. Table of contents include: engineer troops and operations; communications, construction, and utilities; defensive measures; and miscellaneous data. In the original document, there are 47 blank pages after page 369, with graph pages completing the document."
